Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2019 general elections, has restated his commitment to the restructuring of the country if voted into power.
Atiku gave the assurance on Tuesday, January 22, in Owerri, at the southeast presidential rally organised by the PDP.
He charged the people of the southeast to remain dogged in their quest for a government that would sympathise with their desires and aspirations. He further promised to introduce economic policies that would enable businesses to thrive and give the Igbos their pride of place in the country.

Atiku also assured the southeast of encompassing security architecture, devoid of ethnic or religious marginalisation, while charging the people to protect their votes.
His words: “We are going to restructure Nigeria and create the enabling environment for businesses to thrive.
“Nigeria’s security architecture will involve people from different zones of the federation because we will enshrine respect for the rule of law and accommodate everybody.
“It will be necessary that you vote and stay because your vote is your power. Don’t vote and go; stay back and protect your votes," he said.
The rally which held at the Dan Anyim Stadium, attracted a mammoth crowd of supporters.
The highlight of the occasion was the presentation of flags to all the southeast governorship candidates on the platform of the PDP.
Among those in attendance were the party’s vice presidential candidate, Peter Obi, Senate president, Bukola Saraki, and national chairman of the PDP, Uche Secondus, among others.
Meanwhile, the director general of APC campaign organisation in Yobe state speaking at the inauguration of the executives of Concerned Marketers Solidarity Forum (CMSF) for Buni, Bra-bra and Khadija, said that PDP has no hope in the state.
The DG said that Yobe had been the comfort zone of APC and it would always be.
He said that the administration strides of Governor Ibrahim Gaidam and President Muhammadu Buhari have given them reason to campaign massively and ensure the victory of the party at all levels.
